Fabre Montmayou wines have been a staple of mine since I launched Nicholas Wines. It’s hard to imagine a wine that delivers more bang for your buck and consistency than what Herve Fabre is able to produce from his 100+ year old vines each vintage.
The 2018 Reserve Malbec from the heart of Mendoza is dark ruby in color with seductive aromas of blackberry, raspberry, sage and wild herbs. It’s a BIG RED with a small price tag and a wine that dances in the glass.

Absolutely everything. The best part might be that is equally good with or without food.
